On the basis that you qualify, under the Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 you can submit an application to the County Court for for permission to dispense with the service of the initial notice. This will mean that your lease can be extended by the Court. You will be obliged to prove that you or your lawyers have made all reasonable attempts to track down the landlord. On the whole a specialist should be helpful to conduct investigations and to produce an expert document to be accepted by the court as proof that the landlord can not be located. It is wise to seek advice from a property lawyer in relation to devolving into the landlord’s absence and the application to the County Court overseeing Blackburn.

I own a 2 bed flat in Blackburn, conveyancing was carried out half a dozen years ago. How much will my lease extension cost? Equivalent flats in Blackburn with a long lease are worth £180,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £65 invoiced every year. The lease finishes on 21st October 2079

With just 58 years remaining on your lease we estimate the premium for your lease extension to range between £22,800 and £26,400 plus plus your own and the landlord's "reasonable" professional fees.

The suggested premium range above a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we cannot give you the actual costs without more comprehensive due diligence. You should not use the figures in tribunal or court proceedings. There may be other issues that need to be considered and you obviously want to be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. You should not move forward based on this information before getting professional advice.
